KUMHO ECSTA 4X WINS GOOD DESIGN AWARDDec 31st 2012
Kumho Tire U.S.A., one of the world's leading tire manufacturers, introduced the Ultra High Performance, all-season tire Ecsta 4X in August of 2011. Since its introduction, the Ecsta 4X has received rave reviews from consumers, outperformed competitors in testing, and can now add winner of the 2012 Good Design Award to the list of its accreditations.
The Good Design Award is organized annually by The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design in cooperation with the European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies. Since its beginning in 1950, this award has covered new consumer products designed and manufactured in Europe, Asia, Africa and North and South America. Some of the most distinctive companies in the world enter to win a Good Design Award in categories for design and innovation, sustainability, creativity, branding, ecological responsibility, technology, and more. Kumho Tire was awarded this prestigious honor in the category of transportation, alongside noteworthy companies such as BMW, Boeing and Hyundai.
The Ecsta 4X has also received rave reviews from consumers for not only meeting expectations, but exceeding them. The Ecsta 4X delivers outstanding dry and wet grip while providing the everyday needs of snow traction, long wear and comfort. With a 40,000 mile limited tread wear warranty and limited road hazard coverage, the Ecsta 4X combines value and performance to provide the upmost in any driving experience.
According to one consumer review left on a Legacy Owner's Association forum, "The tires are, very simply, superb." Another reviewer commented on NorthAmericanMotoring.com that, "The Kumho 4X handles very predictable from slow speeds to 90 mph. You pick a line and they stick like glue. Even in the rain, they never slipped in a corner, and never hydroplaned." Kumho Tire's Facebook page also reveals countless reviews from consumers, leaving comments such as, "I love My Kumho Ecsta 4X's! I have owned them about 6 weeks, they handle perfectly for a daily driver and my gas mileage even went up about 4 MPG. They are very quiet and hug the turns."
Rick Brennan, Kumho Tire U.S.A. Vice President of Marketing, had this to say about the prestigious award and immense amount of positive feedback since the release of the Kumho Ecsta 4X: "Here at Kumho, we are all very proud of the Ecsta 4X, its performance capabilities and amazing design. We all know what an excellent tire the Ecsta 4X is, but it is honors such as the Good Design Award and consumer feedback that really prove the quality. We urge consumers and dealers alike to not just take our word on the excellent performance of this tire, but see the test results and read the reviews. This tire really can speak for itself."
